Last year, Costco slapped its Kirkland Signature label on some balls from a company called Nassau Golf, which had extras sitting around that it wanted to get rid of.

While detergent pods still have some safety issues and still sort of look a little bit like candy, here’s one inspiring piece of news about them.

Costco Finally Stops Selling Yummy-Looking Detergent Pods In Clear Candy Jars

Several weeks ago, we told you about Costco’s questionable choice of putting its poisonous laundry detergent pods in a clear plastic container that looks an awful lot like the plastic jars it uses for things like animal crackers, nuts, and candies, especially in light of the numerous instances of young children licking, eating, or playing with these toxic toys.
